Sci­ence and skill

Air Gunner - - YOUR LETTERS -

I just wanted to say how good the mag­a­zine is these days, a head and shoul­ders above the oth­ers. I re­ally like how the hunt­ing re­lated ar­ti­cles fo­cus on the sci­ence and skill be­hind hunt­ing, as op­posed to hunt­ing tales or ‘hunt­ing porn’ as I call it. As an aside, I re­call your main gun is the FAC Daystate Hunts­man Regal. I’m thinking of get­ting one as a cheaper al­ter­na­tive to the FAC- rated elec­tronic guns. How does it per­form? JOE SMITH

Hello Joe I’m glad you’re en­joy­ing Air Gun­ner be­cause it’s very im­por­tant for me to know that I’m steer­ing it in the right di­rec­tion to be what read­ers want. I think that the Regal is quite su­perb at12 ft.lbs. and high power and it suits my needs per­fectly. Mine de­liv­ers 30 shots at 29 ft.lbs and is as ac­cu­rate as any ri­fle I’ve ever tested. It also han­dles su­perbly and isn’t ex­ces­sively heavy, so can be car­ried for hours with­out un­nec­es­sary strain. Daystate has re­cently added a new vari­ant that em­ploys a reg­u­la­tor to make the ve­loc­ity more con­sis­tent across the whole fill and ex­tract a few more shots as well. They’re build­ing one for me to try and I’ll pub­lish my thoughts on the changes once I’ve had time to see what they mean out in the field. Ed.

The Daystate Hunts­man Regal is a fine hunt­ing gun at any power level
